Quick stop in Manitou Springs--which springs if not all?

Hi! We will have just a few days in colorado--staying Denver, taking a day trip to Colorado Springs. Hope to make it a longer trip next time. Would love to stop in Manatou Springs for a very short while to experience a spring or two. Thinking that we might leave Denver early and have breakfast in Manitou Springs, but that also would mean then going back to the Air Force Academy before continuing on to Garden of Gods and Olympic training Center.... (Just don't want to hit rush hour traffic.) If we make a quick stop, which would be the best 1 or 2 or 3 springs to see/experience? Thanks!

We got a map of the spring locations and sampled all but three of the natural springs in Manitou Springs this past June. I know at least two of them were not functional at the time. Most are along the main drag so I would stick with those. Each spring has its own flavor and level of natural carbonation. Some were better than others but they all taste much different than what could be considered "normal" drinking water.

You can easily try 5 springs within an hour, they are all close to downtown Manitou Springs. Just pick up the map at the visitors center on the way there.
